There is a slow changing of the guard on the professional front, something that is happening in slow motion and will take another two weeks to complete. Until Pluto turned direct in your career sector earlier in the month he, along with Saturn who turned direct two weeks earlier, had spent the previous five months in retrograde motion and effectively working in the background. This allowed planets on the job front to have their turn and gain as much ground as possible. Juno, the only planet left in your work sector moves into her final two weeks here on Monday and as the queen of commitment, it is time to start nailing down your game plan and resolutions on the job front. The Moon's return on Thursday and position here into the early part of the weekend will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters and on where you need to be tying up loose ends.
There is a changing of the guard on the job front this week and this is set to have big implications on the rest of this professional year. With Venus and Mercury already been and gone from your work sector, the Sun's departure midweek brings you to the point where the planets move on, the trainer wheels are removed and you are on your own for the rest of this professional year. With the final two months of this professional year just around the corner, at the very least this leaves you with enough momentum to coast to the end. That might be what happens in most years but this is not what happens this year. Impatient for the Sun to get out of the way so he can have his turn, Mars finally gets his chance to drive work and job matters and as he is here for another four weeks, instead of dropping back the pace is set to increase. This marks the start of the busiest and potentially most successful weeks of this professional year, especially on the job front.
What a difference a week can make. Last week Venus and Mercury, on their own in your work sector, not only found themselves under pressure for a few days but for the majority of last week. This may have created some work tension or job pressure but it was more that a balance between knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off was being policed. Any planet returning to your work sector will have to come face to face with that reminder. However, with that message delivered things are very different this week. Slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn later next week, Mercury is giving you time to think through and explore your options while as the planet of money, Venus is working to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. This makes starting the week with the Moon in your income sector and with a sharp nose for money from the get go an asset. Meanwhile, the Sun's return midweek will put the solar spotlight on even more options.
The Moon will play a pivotal role in not just joining the dots and reading between the lines across the income, work and career fronts this week but in boosting your confidence across the board. As the Moon moves through your income sector midweek it will form a friendly aspect to Jupiter, just as the planet of luck and expansion moves into his final six weeks in your work sector and with both planets in your career sector, which were energised by last week's Full Moon. It is the Moon's ability to connect with forces across the income, work and career fronts that can energise things, while at the same time giving you the sharp nose for money that will allow you to work smarter. This comes just as the pace is not only picking up on the job front but as you a gaining a better sense of your needs and priorities, especially in terms of job satisfaction and a sense of purpose.
Starting the week with the Moon in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and in opposition with both planets in your busy work sector might sound like a bad way to start the week but the timing couldn't be better. Once every four weeks the Moon puts knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test and when you have planets in your work sector all year this is important. However, for the first time in five months the planets in your work sector are no longer in retrograde motion and there are signs of new movement. Fortunately you have another five weeks before the pace reaches a level that will require some management but within six weeks it will have increased exponentially. Not only that, the pace will continue to pick up through Christmas, New Year and the holiday period, not slowing down for anything through to the early months of 2019. This makes any reminders to pace yourself at the start of this week important.
The Moon's departure from your career sector over the weekend has given you the best of both worlds. This allows you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go, but without any of the pressure this can sometimes put on things. This has also given you time to begin to process the information downloaded and also gain some confidence on the income front. It was the Moon's friendly aspect to both the Sun and Mars in your income sector that has given them an advantage as well. By the time the Sun leaves your income sector midweek and Mars takes the wheel, ready then to start fighting for what you deserve, it will be with a clearer sense of professional direction. This has been the Moon's only visit while the Sun is in your income sector and the first chance to merge a sense of professional direction with a lucrative sense of direction. This has also been a chance to boost your professional confidence.
Starting the week with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage, allowing you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. Yet in the same way that the Sun's return to your income sector midweek will provide a window into the dynamics behind the scenes, the Moon's intuitive edge is giving you a window into what is happening behind the scenes professionally. This explains a boost in professional confidence, with the Moon moving through your career sector with perfect timing. After moving into a friendly aspect with the North Node on the career front last week, Venus is moving into a friendly aspect with dreamy Neptune on the work front, just as the Moon is wrapping up its visit to your income sector. This is a chance to get your ducks in a row across the income, work and career fronts before the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your income options midweek.
The Moon finds itself in the right place at the right time this week and this is something that will have positive implications across the income, work and career fronts. By moving through midweek, this will ensure that your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled right in the heart of your working week and when this can have maximum impact. This is the Moon's first visit since last week's Full Moon on the job front and as it makes a friendly aspect to both planets there, this will do more than fuel your professional instincts and imagination. At the same time, the Moon will make a friendly aspect to Jupiter, just as the planet of luck and expansion is moving into his final six weeks in your income sector. At a pivotal point in your professional and financial year, the Moon brings a chance to get your ducks in a row across the income, work and career fronts midweek.
As the asteroid Juno moves into her final two weeks in your career sector on Monday it is time to start tying up loose ends. Or at least nearly, with a chance first to get one last read on things when the Moon returns on Thursday. With the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars all been and gone and months of planetary activity on the career front just days away from coming to an end, the Moon will bring a chance for one last run through. While only an asteroid, Juno is the queen of commitment and after the momentum generated by the larger planets, her job is to help you finalise your professional game plan and resolutions. It is on Thursday, Friday and into the early part of the weekend that as well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, the Moon will allow you to better read between the lines and join the dots across the income, work and career fronts.
There is a changing of the guard on the career front this week, with the Sun leaving midweek and Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos stepping into his seat in order to take it from here. Where the Sun has had the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options over the last four weeks, the aim is to leave you with everything out in the open and with a transparent sense of all your options. When the Sun leaves Mars will be here on his own and as the warrior planet of the cosmos, he is not interested in sitting around and watching from the sidelines. Instead, this will add fuel to your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and shift the focus to Mars' more action focused one. Mars is here for another four weeks and in that time he will be focused more on making things happen. Just as the pace should be dropping back on the career front, it is likely to increase.
Starting the week with the Moon in your work sector is always going to be an advantage, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go. In the meantime, this is also a chance to check in with the North Node, the force that has been keeping work and job matters on track, moving forward and in the right direction all year. This is always a valuable point in any month to check in and as you begin the week with this advantage, it gets the week off to a good start. However, that would have been the case in any week and this is definitely not just any week. Not only do you have the Sun returning to your career sector midweek in order to turn the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options, multiple friendly planetary alliances are already energising forces across the income, work and career fronts. All the Sun and Moon will do is make what is already there more obvious.
Timing is everything and that is definitely the case for the Moon's monthly visit to your work sector this week. The Moon will move through midweek, with Tuesday to Thursday the point where this will not only be fuelling your intuition, instincts and imagination and giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters but making some important connections. The Moon returns on the same day that Jupiter moves into his final six weeks in your work sector, with a friendly aspect midweek helping to boost your job and professional confidence, just as things are taking off. The Moon will also move into a positive aspect to both planets in your income sector, tapping into everything that last week's Full Moon there generated. As you move into the most important six weeks of this professional year, the Moon returns with a chance to get your ducks in a row across the income, work and career fronts.
